Rise For Gambia

Read to Rise  is an annual campaign in which we focus on providing a fun and safe environment for children all over the world who are less fortunate than us. 

Over the passed couple of years, the students and families at The Rise Academy, have raised over an astonishing £15,000

This year we will be working with Penny Appeal in order to help us build a school in Gambia, in which a school is desperately needed and often overlooked.  Our target this year is to raise £5,000 to build a safe school fitted with classrooms and clean facilities for the children to have fun learning in. 

The deadline for donations is Friday 14th July. Zakat is accepted.
